Welcome to the NPNZ 2021 Conference website.   

We, the NPNZ executive and the conference committee, are looking forward to what we hope will be a time together-not to be taken for granted, to celebrate 20 years of NP’s practising in New Zealand.  Much planning is going into making this an event where we will hear about advances in the work NP’s are doing across New Zealand and Australia, and learn about new ways to make a difference for our patients.   

With a range of presenters and educational sessions as well as poster presentations, there will be something for everyone.  

2020 was the year of the Nurse and Midwife and what a year it was. 2020 saw the registration of the 500th NP in New Zealand.  We also celebrated the gifting of the te Reo Mātanga Tapuhi – Nurse Practitioner. 

I remain optimistic that we will be getting back to a more ‘normal’ life by the end of 2021.  Please save the date and plan to attend our 2021 conference in the beautiful Wairarapa.   

I am looking forward to seeing you there.
